Paper Abstract

Propagation of electro-magnetic radiation in the marine atmospheric boundary layer is discussed, with emphasis on aerosol effects on extinction. An outline of the atmospheric module of the FEL-TNO range predictor is presented. This model is developed to predict the maximum detectable range of a sensor-target combination both for open ocean and coastal marine environments. The effect of meteorological parameters (wind speed, wind direction, relative humidity and air-sea temperature difference) on the maximum detectable range is discussed.
